-------------------------------------

             Summary: IPC/RPC for JavaScript
                 Key: AVRO-1778
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/AVRO-1778
             Project: Avro
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: javascript
            Reporter: Matthieu Monsch


This patch adds protocols to the JavaScript implementation.

The API was designed to:

+ Be simple and idiomatic. The `Protocol` class added here is heavily inspired by node.js'
core `EventEmitter` to keep things as familiar as possible [1]. Getting a client and server
working is straightforward and requires very few lines of code [2].

+ Support arbitrary transports, both stateful and stateless. Communication over built-in node.js
streams are supported out of the box (e.g. TCP/UNIX sockets, or even stdin/stdout). Exchanging
messages over a custom transport requires implementing a single simple function (see [3] for
an example).

+ Work both server-side and in the browser (!).

Ps: I also tested against both the Java and Python implementations over HTTP and communication
worked.
